Keisse and Lampater going strong after day 5
Omega Pharma - Quick-Step rider Iljo Keisse and teammate Leif Lampater not only remain on the podium, but also remain in contention for a race victory going into the final day of SixDays Bremen.
Keisse and Lampater, who held first place after day one with 56 points, fell to second place on the second night and then maintained the third place spot through day 5 on Monday night.
